Monnalisa is indulging into Neo-Romanticism…

The new summer collection by Monnalisa is irresistibly committed to romanticism, interpreted in a fresh and contemporary way… like the sophisticated rebrodè lace, from granny’s trousseaux, “contaminates” daring clothes like the shorts and hide under the wide hippy-like skirts, in impalpable pleated prints.
The soft eco-leather jacket is a passe-partout, with very proper precious frilled wing sleeves… or a frothy tulle skirt which mischievously appears from under a tangerine coloured frock coat.
But the most ironic look of the true necromantic is: sweat shorts and top with a superimposed tulle dress.
All designs are flora inspired – bouquets, vine cuttings and buds – but with contemporary prints…
The Bebè line (3-36 months) tells many sweet stories, tempting like sherbets and patch ice-creams… In the  Monnalisa line the designers celebrate nature…
Monnalisa Chic is inspired by gardens and celebrates the most sophisticated and sparkling summer… Monnalisa Couture: six precious models created with knowledge and craftsmanship using the most up to date fabrics.
Dream dresses ad classic lines enhanced with fabrics and laces of the highest sartorial tradition – taffeta, organdie, macramé or rebrodé lace – with connections to innovative fabrics such as neoprene tooled in cells with a beehive effect…
And last but not least… for the tweens Jakioo with a touch of military chic, softened by coloured stones on the stitching… and Monnalisa Fun with a sporty light hearted style, inspired by 1980s basketball…
